Lego Jurassic World delivers the lines and scenes of four movies

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Not long ago they ruled the land, these enormous, loud and very dumb creatures. They were video game adaptations of every summer blockbuster on every platform. They died off when a big asteroid called "the economic collapse" slammed into their world. One developer, though, still does them quite well.

That would be Traveller's Tales, whose well chosen Lego-ized adaptations of big movies has made the studio famous going back a decade. Here's their latest trailer for Lego Jurassic World, which arrives in June along with the film of the same name.

Lego Jurassic World spans the four movies in the series beginning with Jurassic Park, a movie so impactful Toronto named its NBA team after a dinosaur to cash in on the merchandising. Lego Jurassic World will dress familiar scenes and characters from the films in the series' goofy, slapstick way. It sounds like they've pulled dialogue from the original movies (or had the original actors come back to re-record it virtuoso). I didn't see Jeff Goldblum's insane laugh in this trailer, but by God it had better be in there, too.

Lego Jurassic World is due to launch in June on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, Windows PC, PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS, a seven-platform spread that brings back memories of the golden age of movie adaptations. The film itself will premiere June 12.
